Overhead Console Wiring
 
Hey all,

I am trying to figure out which wire in the overhead console is the hot/switched wire. I do not have a voltmeter. I want to tap into it, to hotwire a radar detector. Here is a pic -

i dont remember off hand but you can take off the 2 screws/bolts for your visor and see what color wire is coming out of it. that is a hot wire and goes into the overhead center console

Oh. Thats for a WK. The WK2 has a different harness. The hot wire from the WK I believe is the yellow/pink wire. The WK2 is different.

Anyone else? Thanks B.P.O.D. for the help regardless!

Thanks BPOD and OR, I may take a crack at this with a voltmeter this week. I like the visor wire route. Santa just happened to drop a new Passport in my front seat.

OR, is that harness the same that wires the rear view mirror?

why not tap into the cigarette lighter? or you could always use "add a fuse"

Its super simple. I had it in my BMW, no problem. Always on when the car comes on, and turns off when you kill the ignition. We just need the hot wire...I have the how to ready to go with pics!

Yes! 16-Pin connector. I have my suspicions its the yellow/blue wire...
